Posted on 08/17/2015 6:04:51 PM PDT by servo1969
More than two years after the State Department claimed there were no emails responsive to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request about a close Hillary Clinton advisers contact with the media, the Department has informed a judge it has located 17,855 emails that appear to match the criteria.
The website Gawker filed a FOIA request in 2012 seeking any emails between Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Philippe Reines (a top Hillary Clinton adviser) and a list of 33 major media outlets. Interest in Reines correspondence with the media was prompted by an angry email exchange between Reines and journalist Michael Hastings. In the exchange, Reines lost his temper and told Hastings to f- off.
In July of 2013, the State Department responded to Gawkers request with a letter which stated, After a thorough search no records responsive to your request were located. Earlier this year Gawker filed a lawsuit asking a judge to force State to produce documents which were responsive to its initial FOIA request.
Finally, in a court-ordered status report the State Department has admitted to having located 81,159 emails belonging to Reines. Of those, State found 22 percent may be responsive to the FOIA request made back in 2012. The Department believes that it will need to conduct a line-by-line review of an estimated 17,855 emails for applicable FOIA exemptions, the status update reads.

He looks like a guy..that would like to be thrown under the bus....
They were in a shoebox in his office.
It sure would be nice to find travel records, whereabouts, and health status for both Huma and Hillary from December 5, 2012 to December 31, 2012. There must be an email trail regarding the flu, head injury, hospital visits, surgery, etc. It would also be nice to know time lost of Huma in the same time frame for illness or injury.
So he told Hastings, what was it, to F off?? Or did he say, “Why don’t you go for a drive, clear your head of this crazy nonsense?”
Omg, if you told Nixon what Hillary has ALREADY gotten away with, he’d die all over again laughing in utter disbelief.
At least, not the legal kind.
We know how this has played out throughout her entire career.
Maybe, some day...
If the Freedom of Information Act had teeth (or if the country were just) there would be 17,855 criminal charges to distribute bring against the one or more government agents who passed over these emails but illegally didn’t release them as the Act requires.
